Re: feet --boot-- heat-- ice question

Good question about the boots Julie...  And how long their feet stay warm for...  The heat went out of Cheyenne's about the same time as her digital pulse went down.


I have read that some people now think icing / cold hosing etc is actually contraindicated for laminitis?  Something to do with the fact that it offers temporary relief but can actually prevent blood flow to the hoof which is also required for healing?
